The Birds of Prey

COLLECTING BLACK CANARY
The Modern Age, 1986-2006

Black Canary Classic

In this list:
SHOWING means that Black Canary is in the story briefly — anywhere from a cameo shot to a few, fleeting frames — but impacts on the overall story very little
FEATURED means that Black Canary plays an active, supporting role in the story
STARRING means just that, too — that Black Canary is the main focus of the story (the term CO-STARRING is used for most Birds of Prey story appearances and a few of Black Canary's appearances when she is clearly acting in a starring role but is not the only character doing so).

Please Note: Appearance lists are organized alphabetically by comic title and then in ascending chronological order by comic publication date.

"BoP!" indicates that the story includes an appearance by Babs & Dinah in BoP mode.

Essential Reading: I've put a Essential Reading beside all appearances I consider "Essential Reading" for Dinah Laurel Lance fans. If you want to get a good, basic overview of Dinah's post-Crisis history, pick up the starred issues. I've marked all the BoP one-shots as Essential but only a few of the regular BoP stories as such. I do consider the series Essential Reading; however, I wanted to highlight the particular issues within that run which deal with her character development as a whole.

 Green Arrow 31, April 1990, “The Canary is a Bird of Prey (part one)” — showing

 Green Arrow 32, May 1990, “The Canary is a Bird of Prey (part two)” — starring — Black Canary — usually only in Dinah-mode — appeared frequently and almost exclusively in Green Arrow until issue #75 when Dinah left Oliver Queen for good. It was under the aegis of writer Mike Grell that she evolved into the more fully drawn — not to mention much harder edged — character she is now. Some don't like this, but I'm of the opinion that it sets her apart from most of the rest of the female heroes in the DCU. The above two-parter is a particularly pivotal one for her and a good example of why the Green Arrow series was published with "suggested for mature readers" on it's cover for so many years.

 Green Arrow 59, April 1992, “Predator (Dinah is back in her classic costume)” — co-starring

 Green Arrow 60, May 1992, “Predator — Part Two” — co-starring — Please note that this is just about as cynical a story as you'll ever find in comics and it is not for the faint of heart; however, it shows Green Arrow and Black Canary working together as true partners, with Canary showing off more than just her chop-socky skills to bring down a truly loathsome bad guy.
